Free Knit Stockinette Stitch Dishcloth by Janice Jones |Published 03-26-2023
This free stockinette stitch dishcloth pattern is a great first project for anyone just learning how to knit.
Other than a simple stockinette stitch pattern, meaning knit one row, purl the next, the only other design element includes a garter stitch border. The border is added so that the dishcloth will lay flat without curling.
This is a very basic pattern that requires few skills. These are the few skills you will need to know to complete this project.
